Is morphine a drug?
That's a good question. Morphine is a chemical that when used by a doctor or nurse to treat a patient, is a MEDICINE. If a person uses the chemical morphine illegally, then morphine is a DRUG. Whether morphine is a medicine or a drug depends on a person's point of view and circumstances. All can agree that it is a chemical though.
Asked in Decade - 1960s, Morphine
Was morphine common in the 1960s?
While morphine was being used illicitly at the time, and although there was a successful black market for morphine, heroin was much more popular and was considered a larger threat. the DEA knew of one smuggling ring that moved 200lbs of morphine into the U.S. every week back in 1968. Morphine was used as a general anesthetic on battlefields during the Vietnam War and there is evidence that addiction to morphine was most popular with veterans returning home.
